Fairbanks Ranch resident Michelle Mirandon’s dedication to charitable giving ensues from two life-changing experiences.
In 2006, physicians diagnosed Mirandon, then in her 30s, as having an inoperable brain tumor.
Miraculously, Mirandon survived.
“Nobody quite knows how,” she said in a recent interview at Fairbanks Ranch Country Club. “I have it, but I thank God everyday it’s not adversely impacting the quality of my life. ... I’ve heard other cancer patients and people in other terminal experiences say that it’s only when you face death that you learn how to truly live and I believe that 100 percent. It clarifies your priorities in a white hot second.”
